conundrum: what to do with the statues President Donald Trump described them on Thursday as "beautiful statues and monuments" part of the history and culture of the country that will be "greatly missed" But they are seen by many Americans as symbols of racism and glorification of the Confederate defence of slavery in the Civil War fueling the debate over race and politics in America Cities are speeding up their removal since Saturday’s rally in Charlottesville Virginia where a suspected white supremacist crashed a car into a crowd killing one woman during protests against the removal of a statue of Robert E Lee who headed the Confederate army in the American Civil War Since Monday officials in Baltimore and Gainesville Florida have taken down statues while another was torn from its plinth by protesters in Durham North Carolina Calls for more to be removed have grown louder The controversial statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee Reuters This has created an additional headache for cities and spurred another debate: how to dispose of the statues once they are taken down Some have suggested museums others putting them in Confederate cemeteries and one city councilman proposed using their metal to make likenesses of civil rights leaders "Melting them down and using the materials to make monuments for Frederick Douglass Thurgood Marshall Harriet Tubman would be powerful" Baltimore city councilman Brandon Scott wrote on Twitter this week The mayor’s office said that was unlikely Unlike Eastern Europe The debate contrasts sharply with how Eastern Europe handled thousands of statues following the collapse of Communism in the late 1980s and early 1990s Often pulled down by angry mobs some of the statues ended up in dumpsters and others in museums to teach people the evils of totalitarian regimes In Budapest a for-profit park hosts about 40 statues of communist heroes such as Karl Marx In the US South the debate still rages between those nostalgic for the past and those who view the monuments as painful reminders of slavery There are more than 700 Confederate statues in the United States according to the Southern Poverty Law Center most of them created in the 1910s and 1920s decades after the Civil War ended They were intended to reassert the power of white people said Jonathan Leib Chair of Political Science and Geography at Old Dominion University in Virginia "They’re visible tangible expressions of power" he said on Thursday In Birmingham Alabama Mayor William Bell ordered workers to hide a Confederate statue behind plywood boards while the city challenges a state law banning the removal of such monuments "They represent acts of sedition against the United States of America and treason against the United State of America" he told Reuters on Wednesday But sympathies persist as both lawmakers and citizens resist plans to remove them "I absolutely disagree with this sanitisation of history" Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin a Republican told WVHU radio on Tuesday Proper Context For now many of the removed statues gather dust in warehouses or as in the case of New Orleans sit disassembled in a city scrap yard where two were found by local reporters In Baltimore statues are now in storage according to the mayor’s spokesman Anthony McCarthy who said they will likely end up in a Confederate cemetery or a museum Many city legislators have expressed interest in relocating statues to museums where they might be viewed as historical artefacts and not rallying points for racism Anna Lopez Brosche city council president in Jacksonville Florida encouraged the removal of Confederate statues from public property on Monday and proposed placing them where they will be "historically contextualised" In Lexington Kentucky Mayor Jim Gray has proposed removing statues from one city park formerly the site of a slave auction block and whipping post Meanwhile a statue removed in Gainesville Florida on Monday is being returned to a local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy which erected it in 1904 The group founded in 1894 by women descended from Confederate soldiers put up many of the statues as part of their goal to display what they call "a truthful history" of the Civil War and mark places "made historic by Confederate valour" Some historians argue that as in Eastern Europe the Confederate monuments should be preserved but in the proper context "A slave whipping post isn’t something we want up just out in public without interpretation" said W Fitzhugh Brundage American History professor at the University of North Carolina "But on the other hand if you have it in the Smithsonian where people can see it and it can be properly interpreted it’s a valuable teaching tool" Kandahar: On Wednesday the Taliban toppled security outposts on the edge of the southern Afghan city of Tarin Kot officials said threatening the third provincial capital in recent weeks The insurgents crept within seven kilometres of the capital of the restive poppy-rich province of Uruzgan prompting urgent calls from officials for reinforcements and air support The Taliban advance comes as the insurgents threaten to capture Lashkar Gah in neighbouring Helmand province and northern Kunduz city which the militants briefly seized last year in a stinging blow to Afghan forces "Some security checkpoints fell to the Taliban without much resistance from security forces" said Haji Baridad a tribal elder in Tarin Kot raising a concern echoed by other local residents "If they continue to flee local people will be forced to take up arms ourselves to defend the city" Representational image AP But Dost Mohammed Nayab the provincial governor’s spokesman dismissed the charge insisting the Taliban will not be allowed to breach Tarin Kot’s outer defences "The Taliban did capture some outposts and came within seven kilometres of the city but they are being pushed back with the arrival of new commando forces" Nayab told AFP "These reinforcements are not enough but more are expected to arrive" he said Nayab added that six security forces had been killed in the last two days of fighting while reporting 36 Taliban fatalities Speculation swirled that the Taliban were seeking to advance on the city’s prison to free captured militants repeating a tactic used when they overran Kunduz last year Seen previously as a rural militant movement capable only of hit-and-run attacks on cities the Taliban have demonstrated an alarming new push into urban centres in recent months The deteriorating security highlights the struggle of Afghan forces stretched on multiple fronts to secure remote provinces such as Uruzgan where Australian Dutch and American troops fought for years As the Taliban edged closer to Tarin Kot they promised on social media to show leniency towards government forces who surrender unconditionally Defence ministry spokesman Mohammad Radmanish rejected the "propaganda campaign" saying the Taliban would be flushed out from the city’s outskirts As Afghanistan’s conflict worsens it is estimated more than one million people will be displaced by the end of the year UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien said calling on the international community to scale up its support "Families have lost their homes and livelihoods Displaced people are living in tents unable to
